In 2014, my (superwoman) wife, Jessie was diagnosed with stage 2 colorectal cancer. Like everyone who has received this news, we were rocked. And after we shared the news with our wonderful daughters and cried about it we deciced to do what we do best, FIGHT!! We knew that God had already given us the power to win.
We got together with great doctors and nurses and underwent a grulling year. 2015 was filled with chemotherapy, scans and surgery to say the least. Together we fought this great battle, and after surgery in July doctors removed 10" of cancer infected colon. VICTORY.!
For 2 years we enjoyed remission, unfortunatly, life is such. This August 9th, doctors now found cancereous spots in her lung and liver. Our reaction this time was more in the way of anger, how and why.?
We called upon Sloan Kettering cancer center again and on August 30th my beautiful wife under went 6 hours of surgery to remove the cancer in her liver. There would only be small healing time beacuse on September 13th she will go under again to remove the cancer from her lung.
To add a little more hurt to our August, she was laid off from her job, so after 24 years of continously working she now has to go on disability. Mentaly she was crushed with the felling of not being able to provide, physically she knew that there was more important matters at hand.
But our battle will be longer and harder than ever. Shorty after she has her second surgery, she must endure 6 months of a more aggressive chemotherapy. All while keeping our girls focused on school, maintaning our home, and not drowning in the darn medical bills.
But we rememeber that word that got us through the first time and will this time as well....FIGHT.
We will never stop fighting ,our attitudes today and tomorrow will always be VICTORY, in Gods name. He is our source of strength and peace in the midst of this storm.
So famiy, Thank You, Thank you for your prayers and your support. We are not quitters, cancer doesn't get to win, so we will never give up.
Much LOVE always, Jacob.
All your gifts will help our stacking medical bills and medicine needed for this battle.
